Re: Trump's Trade Follicy

But I doubt if many of them will figure that out. They'll still vote for repubs because they are racist and hate the same people they hate. Most of them will still rationalize a way to sustain their support for Trump. This is a phenomenon that has been going on since before Trump, namely, Republica...

No. They are again trying to do this via budget reconciliation. They would just need 50 votes.

Re: Pennsylvania 18th CD; Special Election, March 13, 2018

That claim of victory from the DCCC seems a bit premature. I hope I'm wrong. Agreed sadly. Saccone ran only +4 in the absentee vote in Westmoreland, which is far more R-leaning than Washington. The absentee vote in Washington would need to run near +20 for Saccone to bring the totals close. Cautiou...

I think it's 1195 (Washington) and 200 (Greene) = 1395. In short, he'd need to WAY overperform on absentees versus election day votes.

PA-18 was Donald's big county, 94% white. Not only that, it's one of the few areas where Trump's recent tariffs gambit stood to play well. So despite that and the R's grand tax cut, the district has still shifted 20 points. As Trump's trade follicy starts to negatively affect exports elsewhere, it ...

Re: Who's going to be the NEXT one under the bus?

I’m voting for Sessions. I think Trump is fed up with people who should be loyal and obsequious to him not displaying the high level of fawning he expects. I think Tillerson was only the first of several who will be purged. Trump hates Sessions. The longer Trump leaves Sessions in place, the weaker...
